Wednesday, 14 December 2011


So sad to see it go but D&G is lossing its lower price range of D&G but Domenico and Stefano don't want the collection to fade but to have a massive big bang to finish.
To celebrate the line’s last season, they’re asking their devotees to create music videos for a remix of D&G’s very own dance song, “D&G Music,” made several years ago and featuring Stefano repeating the brand mantra: “D&G is D&G, D&G is love.” You have until January 9 to make your clips and send them to, after which the designers will handpick their favorites to be edited into a final video to be debuted on YouTube. For more information on the project, watch this video below.

How Desperate

New show for Monday's nights is 'Desperate Scousewives' on Ch4 - is pretty much a wannable version of 'The Only Way Is Essex' and is clearly even more vissibly set up then TOWIE if that is honestly possible. I have visited Liverpool and it honestly is a great place and I've met some hilarious scosers up there but these 'characters' are just a very dull moring bunch to me and the fashion isn't that great in it either. So far the only highlight has been Amanda's gold sequin dress - yawn. Jaiden from the cast is claimed to be 'Britain's Most Brutal Blogger' I have visited his blog and he's not brutual he's just cruel and damn right rude - he's a definate Marmite character I guess. Well it's only 3 episodes in so I guess it still has time to grow on me possibly like TOWIE did but I can't see it claiming any slogans like 'Reem, Shut Up! & Well Jel!' all have done.

Little Mix

Little Mix (or in Tulisa's version "My Little Muffins") won the final on The X Factor lastnight, and in my opinion it was by far the best result in the series history - they deserved it and I really believe they have a bright future ahead of them unlike some winners from the past....
So here's a couple of photos of the moment the girls found out they have won with mentor Tulisa and their debut single cover for their track 'Cannonball' - which I'm sure is bound to be the Christmas no.1 for 2011/

The girls have shown their quirky individual and group styles from the very start - here's a reminder of some of their looks so far, I'm sure there are still plenty more exciting ones to come in the girls furture.

My mentor Alex Longmore from StyleSchool worked with the group a few weeks ago on a photoshoot which was a total flip on their usual look - ditching the neons/high tops and slogan tops for elegant evening gowns in nudes with embellishments - stunning work. The girls were keen to show their support for StyleSchool - book your place for 2012 now to get an amazing insight into the world of fashion.

Here's my favourite performance from the girls "What's It Gonna Be?'

Marry The Night

Well if I had ever thought before that Lady Gaga's videos couldn't get anymore extreme or bizarre I was very much mistaken. Marry The Night is her newest video and 1 of my favourites from her current album Born This Way. It hold's a similar feel to a Michael Jackson video with it being 13 minutes long and a odd storylike part to the start of it, but the last 4 minutes speeds up into an eyecatching colourful sequence. Not a fan of the naked Gaga rolling around in a bath and throwing milk and cereal all over herself personally but was drawn to the scenes of her in the dance studio with a slight feel for the 80's Fame movie. Take a look and see what you make of it yourself. The ballerina shoes are rather amazing - how she stands up in them is beyond me though. Enjoy

Going Grunge

The grunge trend is here once again, here are some images of the trend that have interested me and I'm now thinking maybe a test shoot on this trend in the start of 2012.

It was all on the runway back in Febuary ready t hit us hard in the Winter months and so it is.
We first saw her on the American TV Show Gossip Girl as a clean cut Manhattan Teenager as Jenny - but with a few extra years on her side now Taylor Momsen is anything like her character from the show - Grunge/Rock n Roll/Bad Behaviour hve taken over.

Sweetie Shoes

Just found these on another blog from Gasoline Glamour -
wow wow wow amazing collection of colour and textures.

Roaming Red

Styling - Chelsie Hood
Photographer - Katie Jade Atkins
Hair & Make Up - Katie Ingram
Model - Amy Woodman (Sandra Reynolds Agency)

So here are the shots from the shoot I did a few weeks ago over in Norwich which we sent forward to Papercut Magazine for it's December Issue under the theme Red Obviously the first 2 looks featured were just a few extras, the last 3 being for the brief. The team included Photographer Katie Jade Atkins  and we were also lucky enough to book model, new face Amy Woodman who you might recognise from the last series of Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model which she came 8th on. We had a great afternoon and I really hope I get to work with this team of talented people again very soon.
